The fact that you like 'small', with no different paths - more primitive games, doesnt mean that more complicated games are worse...
IMHO Half-Life is a great game, I've finished it too... but it cannot be compared to SS1&2.
H-L is close to FPP-arcade while SS is rather FPP-RPG+arcade elements, of course.
It's like comparing Arcanoid and Dungeon Master
